Sadly Marc passed away in 2009

Marc Levison, of Bexley, loving husband, father and inspiration to 
thousands passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 8, 2009. Afflicted with 
ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) for over 21 years, he taught his family, friends 
and the community to stand up and never give up. 

As his body weakened his spirit gained astonishing power and his daily thoughts and philosophical insights reached his loyal readers and taught all to overcome challenges and focus on the positives. 

Marc's life was spent with enjoyment and service to his country (Marc served in the U.S. Navy on USS CV-61 Ranger during the Vietnam War). 
Marc was also a retired Union Electrician from IBEW Local 683. 

Most of all, Marc's life had meaning. As the ALS progressed, he couldn't stand 
but he taught all to stand tall, as his ability to speak deteriorated his 
voice and message became even stronger. 

The Annual Marc Levison 5K Run/Walk for Lou Gehrig's Disease has raised over $150,000 through the Helping Link Foundation to fund research to find a cure for the debilitating disease. 

This year alone, Marc raised over $25,000 and fought through tremendous pain and 
battled yet another cursed disease, cancer, in order to participate in the 7th 
annual event. Marc Levison recently celebrated his 63rd birthday. 
He is preceded in death by his mother Fay, his father Abraham, and his sister 
Sheila. Marc is survived by his beautiful and caring wife of 42 years, Eileen; 
and his children, Brent (Jessica) and Kevin. Graveside ceremony were held 
Thursday, October 8, 2009.
